There’s very little I can say about the specifics of this book, since the blurb gives only the broadest overview.  I don’t want to spoil anything, so this is going to be a tricky review to write… but I’ll do my best to entice your reading appetite.

Shunned: How I Lost my Religion and Found Myself by Linda A. Curtis


Linda Curtis was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, and everyone she loved—her friends, her family—shared her faith, as did the man she eventually married. She belief was strong until she was in her early thirties, when doubts crept in and she begins to question everything she’d ever believed to be true.
